Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a great-grandfather, born in 1937, who just got started with the project in the summer of 2007.

Being an ex-smoker and having COPD I find this to
be a very good way to get the fresh air and exercise I need.

I got started with cemetery photos a few years ago to add information to the family history my wife Nancy and I are working on.

Joined the Navy Oct. 13, 1955, a member of the U.S. Navy SeaBees, discharged Sept. 21, 1959.

My photographing cemetery work has been mostly in Ashland County, Ohio and adjoining counties, some work in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and North Carolina, extended family.......Bill

Warren Althaus
As you will see I changed the name of Warren Althaus to Francis Warren Althaus today. If you look closely at the photo of his Death Certificate you will an "F" preceding his name, Warren. I have photo of a family chart that matches the year of birth to Francis. I would be happy to email the close up of that section of a much larger tree to you if you wish.

Regards, Tom Jenkins

memorial #60609531
Hi and thank you for the work that you do. On the above memorial for William Pomeroy, I think its just a typo, but you have the middle initial as J and it is actually H. I double checked the picture you posted and it says H as well as the 1910 through 1930 censuses also has middle initial H. Thanks!

Essie Harris Polkinghorn-42958785
Bill, Essie was not the mother of Richard, Rex and Norman Polkinghorn. She was married to Ralph Dine on December 10, 1919, Richland county, Ohio. He died August 30, 1930.
On the 1920 census it is listed only Edward Polinghorn, Gladys and Richard. Gladys brother Fred Ritter (Retter) is also living with them.
On the 1930 census it just list Edward, Richard, Rex, Guy Norman and his mother Martha J. Polkinghorn. It states Edward is married, but Gladys is not listed.
On the 1940 it list Edward, Essia, Rex, Guy N. and Martha Polkinghorn-his mother. I know it list sons, but that would be for Edward.
Gladys either died or they were divorced.
I have tried to find their marriage record, but nothing.
I hope this is not too confusing.
Thanks for all your contributions to Find A Grave.
